The last month has been excruciating for me as each day I've expected him to start crawling.. and each day ends with him still pulling the same tricks. I know what you're going to say... "Cheyenne, don't be too excited about the introduction of mobility.. Be happy you can put him down and leave him." Ya ya.. I've heard it. But that doesn't make me any less excited about him reaching that milestone. I think he gets frustrated now that he can't move like he wants to. I put him down, he scoots backwards- thus leaving his toys just out of reach and then he complains that he has nothing to play with. Oh ya, he's also developing separation anxiety, so if I leave his sight he gets upset. I've never felt so needed! It's kind of flattering. Sometimes even daddy can't calm the savage beast, but once he's handed over to me, he rests his head on my shoulder and settles right down.
He's becoming quite efficient with eating solids. He doesn't even get much on his bibs anymore (unless daddy is feeding him- j/k.. kinda) I've been giving him puffs to keep him busy while I prepare his meal and it's fun to watch his hand eye coordination develop.
Let's see how many I can get in one hand...
Open wide!These months are definitely action packed as each day he seems to be doing something new. Oh ya.. he's got 4 TEETH! He's bit me once or twice but I try to be over dramatic so maybe it scares him a little and he understands that it hurts and not to do it again! So twice in over a month of having teeth isn't bad.
Let's see.. what else? After seeing a cute video on how much Riley's cousin, Brenden was enjoying the little learning table, I broke down and got one ($15 on Craigs list!!). He isn't pulling himself up but he does seem pretty entertained with all the music and buttons- even if he is hitting the buttons accidentally as he clings to the table so not to fall down. He looks like he's having fun... right?
That's all for now. I'll of course be posting when he finally does make the forward progression with his crawling. Till then, peace!
